There is an article going around titled, “Anti-vaccination leaders fuel black mistrust of medical establishment as covid-19 kills people of color” I won’t link it because they don’t deserve the ad click.
The article contains the usual bull shit. Wakefield. Discredited. Fraudulent. Retracted. Which is a lie.
IT LEAVES OUT SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT.
You know what fuels “black mistrust?” It’s the CDC throwing data in the trash can that linked something like a 276% increase in Autism in black children who got the MMR before 36 months of age.
RIGHT IN THE TRASH. This is all public knowledge. They tried to water down the results and when they couldn’t, they simply excluded the kids in the study who this applied to. Changed the model midstudy. Which is against every protocol out there.
We are coming up on the 6 year anniversary of the #CDCWhistleBlower when all this information came to light.
Mainstream media: Crickets.
Fuck you, CDC
Fuck you, William Thompson. Turning over the documents doesn’t absolve your sins.
P.S. The study also linked all “isolated autism” to the MMR. Isolated autism means without other dx. So… the VAST majority of our kids. #GoodLuckWithYouVaccines
This meme recently caught a second wind over on my old facebook page, Autism Wars. People are sharing it. Good. I hope it makes some think.
Here is the story behind the moment the sentence “Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidence in the United States.” popped into my head. I was reading “Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder” by Karen Seroussi, and she mentions how “fish” was her son’s last word, because there was an aquarium in the waiting room at the doctors office when she took him for his MMR. I about fell off my chair. Me Too. Gavin Too. “ishies” was his last word… because there was an aquarium in the waiting room at the doctors office when I took him for his MMR. I wondered how many moms had that same story.
I laughed to myself when I pictured the medical community saying, “Tapping on fish tanks and saying “Fish”” is linked to autism! Get rid of your fish tanks!!
I thought about all the other “coincidences” that all our kids have in common. The ear infections, the gut trouble, the eczema, the timing of the regression… All, ‘coincidentally’ following vaccines. And there it was… vaccines! Vaccines are to blame for the epidemic rise in coincidence in this country!
Insert: *eye roll*
You know, true scientific method doesn’t ignore even the smallest of coincidence. It studies it. Our CDC did study it… and they found that MMR vaccine was linked to an increase in Autism in black boys and individuals with isolated autism (which, is pretty much all our kids). And then they reworked those numbers to make it go away. Don’t believe me? Go see Vaxxed.
Don’t stay misinformed. You don’t have to. Fish tanks in doctors offices don’t cause autism. Vaccines can, however, and vaccines do. You have to look at what is biologically plausible. You have to understand that autism isn’t a “thing” in and of itself. It’s a label slapped on a box that holds a list of symptoms. What causes all those symptoms?
